Yes, the conversion kit will be available very soon after the initial launch, no pun intended.

I'm sure we can figure something out Twitch.

As far as thinking it out, I have spent five years developing and testing different prototypes to come up with something that I am proud of. That may seem like a long time, but I was running two other companies and touring around the country with a rock band at the same time. I think I did ok.

What type of band is the question.Don't need the Celine Dion(I hope I spelled that right) kind of bands.Classic Rock is the way to go.Not enough good music out these days.Solar,I'd say you did a heck of a job on your cannon.

Thanks guys... the bands...well...

Queesnryche, Dream Theater, Fates Warning, Echo7, and Stone Temple Pilots.

In that time I had a chance to hang out with Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Dio, Disturbed and members of Heart, Alice in Chains, Yes and Tangerine dream.

I missed my chance to meet Ozzy... :-( I was on a boat when I got the call that I had passes...


my age.... well.... older than I want to be.... I was born on 9-11, 1968.

Well, ALMOST making my own cannons. Another 9 days before production begins full scale. The details are just taking way to long. I'm sure there will be changes after the first run anyways, but I designed the gun to be adaptable for that. I'm certain we can come up with a solution for you Aussies as well.

hahaha, I already have two daughters. I had to build the launcher before they became teenagers to freak out all the boys they bring home to meet papa.

nice looking gun but doesn't interest me. make it look more like a rifle and less like a kiddy grenade launcher and then we can talk.

hahaha, all you would have to do is add an ak or ar-15 stock to this to change it's profile. The breech load variant also has more of a rifle look. I wonder about your kiddy comment.... I don't recall ever seeing small children playing with grenade launchers.... yet....

We were talking about making smaller bore sizes, but 40mm is the way to go right now for the applications we are using it for.
